Muniments of the Coke family of Longford, Derbyshire, and Holkham, Norfolk. The family's estates lay principally in Derbyshire, Lancashire and Suffolk, and the majority of documents relate to these counties. More than half concern Derbyshire and principally Longford. Other documents relate to the manors of Wherstead, Bourn Hall and Pannington Hall in Suffolk, and estates in south-east Lancashire, notably Reddish, Great and Little Heaton and Crumpsall. There are also documents concerning the former owners of these properties, the families of Longford of Longford, Reddish of Reddish, Hulton, Langley, Prestwich, Browne, Radcliffe and Hall. The collection is particularly rich in manorial records from Longford, Haddon, Newton Solney and Hathersage in Derbyshire, Wherstead and Goddelsford (i.e. Gusford Hall) in Suffolk, and Prestwich and Reddish in Lancashire. There are also many fine seals.
